Get Ahead

Get Ahead
3:20pm to 4:30pm
Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in the Learning Commons

The Learning Commons will be available for students to use the space and resources to complete homework or to catch up on work that is incomplete or missed. This includes the use of ICT facilities and the books in this area.

The area will be staffed, and support will be available for all students who may require additional provision in completing tasks or finding resources. Students will also be encouraged to support one another in their learning where appropriate also.

Online Booking

Online booking is available to help us to pre-plan, however, should your son decide that he needs to attend at the last minute he will be welcome.

Please follow this link to the booking form


Follow us on our new Twitter account @DHSBGetAhead where we will post important information and advice.


Our Get Ahead club is a real benefit for all students which gives them the opportunity to complete work in a safe and supportive environment. It will also give an opportunity to ensure that all homework is complete, and handed in on time therefore reducing the chance of gaining assignment loggings.


To recognise those students who attend, Get Ahead will provide a formal reward card system where students can achieve commendations for attending, completing homework, and supporting others.
